Sometimes A + B = O. Yes. Oh, yes. Just like that.

Gabriella Evans’s life exists in terms of logic and definitions. She’s holed up in Portland, Maine, for the summer to work on her PhD thesis, but something is screwing up her concentration: the rumble of a motorcycle every time the embodiment of her rough-and-tumble fantasies rides down her street.

When her best friend talks her into a blind date, she finds herself out with the opposite of her fantasy. He’s polite and well-mannered, yet something behind his crisply tailored shirt doesn’t add up—a rebellious gleam in his eye that piques her curiosity.

Orphaned at fifteen, Connor Starks has finally put the years of failing grades, breaking laws and breaking hearts behind him. The only holdover? His penchant for getting down and dirty in public places. But Gabriella makes him want to prove he’s become a better man.

Nothing intrigues Gabriella more than a problem she can’t solve. But the more Connor tries to bury his past, the more determined she is to uncover it. And what she finds makes all her trusty logic begin to fail her…

Warning: This book contains a summer romance, dirty talk, dockside kissing, motorcycles and tattoos. Features a rebellious nerdy girl with an appetite for outdoor sex and light spanking, and a bad boy who’s turned good…or at least he’s trying.

My Thoughts:

I just knew that upon picking up this story, I would be caught up in a whirlwind romance. It wasn't unfounded either--I definitely got drawn into their story immediately, and found it very hard to tear myself away from it once I started.

Gabriella and Connor are hard to resist--and an absolutely perfect blend of naughty and nice. There's a mix of wanting to be good and wanting to be bad that has these two with a little bit of back and forth, yet can't wait to see each other again... and again... and again. Add in those kisses and their getting-to-know-you moments and you have a nice little recipe for a great romantic tale!

The Duality Principle is a brilliant play of romance. It's honest and real and has the kind of depth you long for in a novella. It's not super long, but it's long enough for you to get attached to the characters and get swept up in the romance. Rebecca Grace Allen is an author to keep your eye on, that's for sure. Can't wait to see what else is up her sleeve!

My Rating:

Rebecca Grace holds a Bachelor of Arts in English with a double concentration in Creative Writing and Literary Comparison, which seemed like a good idea at the time. After stumbling through careers in entertainment, publishing, law and teaching, she’s returned to her first love: writing. A self-admitted caffeine addict and gym rat, she currently lives in upstate New York with her husband, two parakeets, and a cat with a very unusual foot fetish.
